Laser Hair Removal Cost
Laser hair removal is priced by the size of the area treated. Widespread fuzz eradication will cost more than removal of a patch of hair. A limited area, like the upper lip or sideburns, costs about $150 to $350 per laser treatment. Hair removal on larger parts of the body, like the legs, can cost up to $1,000.
Remember that several sessions will be required, depending on how dark and coarse hair growth is. It could take seven to 10 sessions to eliminate extremely fine hair. Typically, prices are listed as per-session prices.

How to get laser hair removal: Laser hair removal is offered in spas and salons, as if it were as routine as a massage. However, make no mistake that choosing a doctor who is board-certified and licensed to use the laser technology is extremely important. Oftentimes this will be a dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon. If a physician's assistant is operating the laser device, make sure that a doctor is on-site to supervise the procedure.
